Practice Group Philosophy

The Intellectual Property Practice Group works with clients to create, manage and enhance the value of their intellectual property, which includes patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. We help clients protect their intellectual property assets, exploit opportunities to create added value through licensing and acquisition, obtain financing, and protect against infringement by unauthorized parties. As with all our practice groups, the Intellectual Property Practice Group believes that the team approach is often the best way to ensure top quality legal services delivered in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. In addition, we have successfully integrated state-of-the-art technology into the practice of law, which particularly benefits clients with requirements for legal counsel in intellectual property.
